CH 2010 Key Points for Chapter 6 Fall 2014 Key Points for Substitution Reactions For substitution reactions, be able to identify the nucleophile, electrophile, and leaving group. Be able to predict substitution products, and how to make a compound from a substitution reaction. Know and be able to explain leaving group and nucleophile trends. Know what solvent is preferred for S N 1 or S N 2 reactions. Know when S N 1 vs. S N 2 will occur and why. Know the stereochemistry, reaction mechanisms, steric effects, alkyl halide structure, nucleophile strength, and effect of solvent on S N 1 and S N 2 reactions Know when S N 1, S N 2, E1, or E2 is favored and why. Be able to predict elimination products. Know that “unexpected” substitution products are explained by hydride (H: - ) and R: - shifts in the S

Unformatted text preview: N 1 mechanism. ● Be able to draw mechanisms for substitution and elimination reactions. Key Points for Elimination Reactions ● Be able to predict dehydration and dehydrohalogentation products. Pay attention to catalyst needed for each type of reaction. When there are two possible beta-elimination products, know which one is preferred. ● Be able to name alkenes (cis/trans and E/Z nomenclature and priority rules). ● Be able to explain boiling point and solubility trends of cis/trans isomers. ● Know that “unexpected” elimination products are explained by hydride (:H) and :Rshifts in the E1 mechanism. ● Know that the products of E2 reactions mechanistically depend on the anti relationship between the β-hydrogen and the leaving group....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
